The "Sunny Day 16" Rule

I found a fascinating article on DIYPhotography.net covering the Sunny Day 16 rule – a rule that was one of those to never forget when using film. Essentially, on a sunny day you set your aperture to f/16 and shutter speed as close to the ISO speed on the film, practically this means ISO speed 100, aperture f/16, shutter speed 125 (or 100 if it allows).

Now all I have to do is try it out on digital film…and remember the rule.
